You were an amazing woman and I an honored to have known you.
Dear family of Miriam, I don't know when I have loved or been loved by anyone as precious
as Miriam. She was such a joy to know and to visit. My job was to see that see she felt better, but she never failed to make
me feel better just being herself. I think of her often and will miss her terribly!
